NEWS EDITOR
After news that a student was raped
in Cotten Residence Hall broke,
police officials are still trying to find
a link that will lead them to a
suspect.
Police say anyone with any
information may help with the
apprehension of the suspect.
According to Tom Younce,
assistant director of the ECU Police
Department, "We (police) are still
hoping someone will come forward
The only lead police officials
currently have is that some of the
victim's possessions were found on
the corner of 4th and Jarvis St.
Sundav afternoon.
Shortly after the rape was
reported, the State Bureau of
Investigation Crime Scene Unit
carefully combed the room for any
physical evidence, such as
fingerprints, hairs, fibers
and bodily fluids. '
"The physical
evidence is being
processed by the SBI
Younce said. "It
(evidence) is being
analyzed
The police
department is hoping
there will be a sufficient
amount of evidence to
do DNA testing.
"They may be able to
do DNA testing
Younce said. "North Carolina is one
of the leaders of DNA testing-they
have a bank of DNA testing. If the
suspect has been arrested before
they may have a DNA record
At this time it is still unknown

how the suspect initially entered
Cotten Hall.
"There is no evidence of
breaking in Younce said.
According to Younce, it is likely
that the suspect was a
friend or guest of a resident
of Cotten Hall. It is also
possible that the suspect
was let in the building
unescorted.
Police are hoping that
residents of Cotten Hill
will remember something
after some time has passed,
possibly an important link
they didn't realize they
knew.
"We are interviewing
people and reinterviewing
people Younce said.
In addition to interviewing the
residents, the police are talking to
other law enforcement agencies to
see if they have experienced similar
situations and how they handled it.

The worst that could happen did.
Last week women in Cotten Hall
awoke to the horror that their home
had been invaded by a nightmare; in
the early morning hours there was a
brutal rape on the first floor. Even
now, the perpetrator has yet to be
caught and no one knows for certain
how he got into the building.
Residents say that only time can
begin to heal the legacy of fear, pain
and outrage that the attack has left
behind, but in the meantime they
are taking every step they can to
protect themselves.
Molly Floyd and Ashley King,
both second semester freshmen,
live together on Cotten Hall's third
floor. They say that despite the fact
that they

Scientists say consequences
of cloning must be taken
into consideration
CRAIG D. RAMEY
SENIOR WRITER
Human cloning is not yet possible,
but philosophers and scientists
agree that all consequences should
be taken into consideration before
the first clone is born.
"Science possesses the ability to clone
humans said Vfendall Allen, undergraduate
director of biology. "But we don't know when we
can do it technically. Once science can do it
safely, it will be up to society to decide the moral
and ethical issues
Several ECU professors in the Philosophy
Department are split on their views on the
ethics of human cloning.
"There is a tendency to look at things in a
limited perspective said Richard Miller,
associate professor of philosophy. "Take seriously
what the long run ramifications could be. We
have to think about it because the effects aren't
easy to see now. If we let it happen without
thinking it through, we will have to sort out the
consequences. Undoing a society built around
technology is a nightmare
Miller's focus on the debate is
a concern for the altering of
. family links and structures once
-cloning is common.
"This makes families
unnecessary Miller said. "If
people clone instead of
reproduce, we could lose the
family as a basic unit
Other philosophers see few
problems with cloning and are in
full support of technology's
advances.
"I see no problem with
cloning said Dennis Cooley,
visiting professor of philosophy.
"You could abuse your body until
you're 50, then transplant your
brain into your clone
This process, called organ
harvesting, has been the center
of a huge debate in the bioethics community.
Scientists could create a clone much like a
, anacephalaic infant, which has a limited brain
that only functions to keep the body alive. This
is where society decides on where life begins in
the body.
"If the clone is not a person, I wouldn't have
an objection said Frank Murphy, assistant
professor on the philosophy of religion. "If a
fetus has a soul I don't suppose a clone would
lack one. It's like using a person as a thing

How would hi
cloning work?
Scientists take a som�
cell from a person and
remove Its nucleus. Then
the nucleus is removed
from a fertilized egg and
placed in the somatic
cell. (Currently It is
impossible to clone

somatic celts are too

benefit from this technology.
"Everybody would agree that there is a need for
organs Allen said. "We could make a heart in a pig
that was accepted by the human body. A large part
of society would accept raising pigs for the benefit
of mankind
Many organizations such as Greenpeace oppose
any type of animal or human cloning. Groups
concerned with these issues have gone to the
government for support of their beliefs. President
Bill Clinton heard these calls and implemented a
temporary ban on human cloning and prohibited
the contribution of U.S. Federal Funds. Some states
have issued restrictions as well. European
Parliament called for a moratorium on animal
cloning until more ethical studies are undertaken.
"Government intervention is necessary Cooley
said. "About 10 years ago, they scientists cloned a
single cell organism and promised that they would
never try a multicellular one. This makes me wary
about trusting a scientist's word of honor
Who should have control over cloning has been
an issue that scientists, activists and ethics
committees continue to debate about.

Campus greeks make
donation to Crimestoppers
IFC, Panhellenic raise
$1000 during Greek
Games
MF.LANIE HACKWORTH
STAFF WRITER
Campus Greek organizations
united together and made a sizable
donation to the GreenvillePitt
County Crimestoppers Tuesday.
"We're here for the betterment
of the community said Inter
Fraternity Council (IFC)
President Micah Retzlaff about
the IFC and Panhellenic Council's
donation.
ECU's fraternities and
sororities tried to make the
community a better place this
week bv donating $1000 to the
GreenvillePitt County
Crimestoppers. Cpl. William G.
Harris and Crimestoppers
Chairman Donald Skinner were on
hand at the IFC's weekly meeting
to accept the check from IFC and
Panhellenic Council
representatives.
Money for the donation was
raised during last semester's
Greek Games. The Greek Games
are a weeklong event that
fraternities and sororities
participate in to raise money for
various charities. Local
restaurants donated a percentage
off of every meal eaten by a
member during the week. Also,
sporting events and other games
helped to raise money. The rest of
the donation came from fraternity
and sorority chapter donations to
this cause.
Retzlaff indicated that the
original concept behind this
donation came from the IFC's past
philanthropic chairperson Sean
McManus.
In choosing the Crimestoppers
organization, the IFC hopes to try
to brighten the image of the Greek
system after some recent dark
events and show that one chapter
does not represent all. In the past,
the IFC and Panhellenic Council
have donated to the Special
Olympics, the Greenville Police
Department and many other
worthy organizations.
In the past year, GreenvillePitt
Countv Crimestoppers have
issued over $30,000 in rewards and
have seized over $1.8 million in
stolen and illegal goods. The
Crimestoppers has been
responsible for numerous arrests
for crimes against students and
crimes by students.
"We're glad the students are a
part of correcting the problem
Harris said, as he accepted the
check.
Retzlaff closed the donation
ceremony with words of
inspiration.
"Go make our community a safe
place for us Retzlaff said.

Newton, associate prof
of pediatrics to serve
until end of 2000
NINA M. DRV
STFF WRITER
Dr. Dale Newton, an associate
professor of pediatrics at the ECU
School of Medicine, has recently
been elected SecretaryTreasurer
of the MedPeds Program
Directors Association.
MedPeds is the combination of
studying both internal (adult)
medicine and pediatrics.
"Over 1500 physicians in the
United States are doubly trained
in this field Newton said.
"Currently we have 15 residents in
our program here at ECU
At this time MedPeds is
considered the "minority" in
medical fields, but it is definitely
growing.
"Right now there are as many
residents in training as there are in
completed rank Newton said.
Unlike pediatrics, internal and
family medicine, which consists of
three years of residency, those
interested in MedPeds as a
profession must complete an extra
year of residency before becoming
certified.
"A MedPeds trained individual
gets two years training in internal
medicine and two years training in
pediatrics Newton said.
Newton, who has been in this
field of medicine for 14 years, took
over the role of program director of
the MedPeds program when he
joined the University's staff a little
over six years ago. This past fall
Newton was nominated and
appointed SecretaryTreasurer by
the directors in the office. His
duties will consist of monthly
national conference calls and
communicating with other
officers, including the
representatives on the respective
boards and organizations of
pediatrics and internal medicine.
This March, Newton will attend
the annual national meeting which
will be held in San Diego.
Newton's term began this
January and will proceed until the
end of the vear 2000.

Students considering the study

programs for the fall of '98 should
have their applications in during

There are many options for
students who want to go overseas.
Students can work, study or just
travel.
The two work abroad programs
available are a program sponsored
bv Bunac and one sponsored by
Council. The Bunac program
"makes it possible for U.S.
students to legally work in
Britain McGowan said. "The
Bunac and Council programs make
the legalization easier
"I have never talked to a
student in the Britain program
who couldn't find a job
McGowan said.
"An increasing number of ECU
students have gone through this
program and worked at a variety of
jobs McGowan said.
According to McGowan, the
largest percentage of students
applv for the work abroad program
and find the job after they arrive.
Students who go through the
work abroad program make enough
money to live on and even a some
extra spending money. McGowan
said.
"Students who have gone
through the program have reported
learning more about the country
McGowan said.
The American Youth Hostels
Organization (AYH) is a
membership organization that
provides students with lower cost
accommodations.
AYH varies from one place to
another. Some students stay in
castles, hotels, estates and even on
a ship in one place in Sweden.
"Another benefit is the
opportunity to meet other
travelers McGowan said.
"Students don't have to study or
even be a youth, they can just want
to travel alone or with family
There is also a volunteer
working abroad program. A
number of organizations provide
volunteer programs in other
countries.
"The volunteer activities range
from "building houses to providing
health care services McGowan
said.
The volunteer programs require
a small program fee, but housing
and some meals are provided.
Before a student can go
overseas he or she needs to get an
ID card. Usually it only takes a day
or too to process, but students
must fill out an application, have
proof of student status and provide
a small photograph.
"There are two very important
purposes to the ID card
McGowan said. "It serves as an ID
for students for discounts on
airfare, tours, museums, events,
meals and other transportation.
Students also get a supplemental
insurance with the card which
includes medical evacuation and
repatriation
"Advantages to students
studying abroad are they learn to
be more independent, learn more
about the country visited and learn
more about their own country"
McGowan said. "Students looking
for adventure and something
different are in the best frame of
mind for the experience

Student Health recommends Hepatitis B
vaccination to reduce risk of infection
One out of 20
Americans affected by

STAFF WRITF.R
With nearly one out of 20
Americans infected with
Hepatitis B virus, and
approximately 14 Americans dying
even, day due to Hepatitis B-
relatcd illness, students are highly
recommended to receive a
Hepatitis B vaccination.
Student Health offers an
effective vaccine to protect
students against this incurable
disease.
"Hepatitis B is a
communicable viral infection
caused by the Hepatitis B virus
(HBV) that attacks the liver said
Ron Greene, vaccine account
manager at S-ithkline Beecham
Pharmaceuticals of Virginia.
"HBV can lead to severe illness,
liver damage and in some cases,
death
Heather Zophy, health
education coordinaror at ECU's
Student Health Service, strongly
urges students receive the
Hepatitis B vaccine.
"The student population is a
vulnerable population at risk
Zophy said. "This is the only STD
which offers a vaccine. You can
actually do preventative measures
before you put yourself at risk
One can become infected by
engaging in sexual intercourse
with an infected person, using
contaminated needles and sharing
personal items such as razors,
toothbrushes and nail clippers.
"It's a big issue Zophy said.
"It can live in dry blood for up to
seven days, and is transmitted
more easily than HIV"
Many people can carry
Hepatitis B virus with
symptoms appearing until
weeks to six months later.
"If they occur, the usual
symptoms may be flu-like and
include fatigue, mild fever, muscle
and joint aches, nausea, vomiting,
loss of appetite, vague abdominal
pain, occasional diarrhea and
jaundice Greene said.
The vaccination, administered
in three separate shots, is offered
in some Greenville health
facilities; however, ECU Student
Health Service offers the
vaccination at a reduced cost. "If
a student is under the age of 20,
the cost for the series of three
shots is $50, and if students are 20
the
no
six
or older, the cost is $100 Zophy
said.
The Center for Disease
Control and Prevention (CDC)
and the American College Health
Association recommends all
college students receive the
vaccine. Some colleges require
vaccination before entry.
"ECU will end up adding it to
the immunization requirements
eventually Zophy said.
Students can contact Student
Health at 328-6841, and the
Health Education Office at 328-

"I think the vaccination is very
important Zophy said. "We have

This new process brought with
it a concern that with added
human influence, there would also
be more of a chance for human
error.
"There is a quality control
setup designed to prevent this
Stelma said. "If I take the papers
from the student, I give them to
the next person to enter the data
on the department of education
machine. Another person puts the
information into the estimator for
Student Financial Aid, which
imitates the government
software. We print off the results
from the unofficial software and
file them alphabetically When
we get the results back, a
different person looks over them
line by line to see if the results
match. We look for data entry-
errors. If we have to, we
retransmit the data
Stelma hopes eventually there
will be computer stations that
would allow for students to
complete this process themselves
in the Financial Aid Office, where
they could get any help they
needed.

King and Floyd both say they
are afraid to go out at night, that
they always travel in groups and
that they and many others have
been making frequent use of the
ECU police department's escort
service. It seems to them that
everyone is taking measures to
ensure their own safety.
"All of our friends the day after
it happened went to the pawn
shop and got mace King said.
Cotten Hall has sponsored
meetings for the residents at large
as well as for individual halls,
changed the outer door locks and
temporarily had police officers
walking through the building.
King said that she is "impressed"
with how quickly the university
has responded with programs to
improve security and inform
residents about events related to
the rape, but she fears that once
the initial commotion is over the
issue will die down.
"I think it's going to go away;
it's like a fire: for two weeks you're
big on fire safety, then everything
just goes back to normal King
said.
Both King and Floyd think that
all males should be signed in and
out upon arrival, and that greater
measures should be taken to
ensure that it is known exactly
who is in the building. However,
they also agree that residents play
a large role in the safety of the
whole community by escorting
their guests, never letting in
anyone they don't know and
making sure no one follows them
inside.
"You just get so comfortable you
forget to be careful Floyd said.
She said she will stay in
university housing next year, and
that she thinks that incidents like
the rape at Cotten Hall happen on
campuses everywhere.
"I'm just going to take it as it
goes Floyd said. "I think they're

You are making your way down College Hill, and you are on your way to class. You are
trying to hurry because you are already more than ten minutes late , and then you run into
10th Street. Waiting, waiting, waiting some more, and finally you take your first step off
the curb nope, here comes another car. Finally there is a break in the traffic, but you
are not sure if the break is big enough to make it safely across the "highway Do you
chance it?
If this sounds like your life story, don't worry; the whole entire student body feels your
pain. As of right now, no student or faculty member has ever been hit by a car while trying
to cross 10th Street, but there sure have been a lot of times where it has come close.
In considering the number of commuters and residents who are trying to work their
way around the cars passing by each day, we at the TEC feel that there is a solution to
what we consider not only an inconvenience in the mornings, but more importantly, a
huge risk factor. The university needs to consider making an investment, one that would
be costly but would ensure safety for its students and faculty.
What is our idea? We think that a crosswalk should be built, not one that crosses the
pavement, but instead one that pedestrians could cross above the pavement. If a bridge
was built to connect one side of campus to the other, students would not have to battle
with the traffic for a chance to cross the street, and the chances of being hit by a car
would be eliminated completely.
While such an investment would cost the university a good amount of money, the value
of a bridge would far outweigh any dollar amount that it would cost to have one built. It
would not only would it unify campus, stand as a new university landmark and be one
more thing to paint purple and gold to show our school spirit, but also create a safer and
less frustrating enviroment for those who are just trying to make their way to class.

Condoms suck, but be safe; wear one
Condoms will never be
effective because sex is about
the most primitive natural
thing humans have left in
their biological make-up and
latex just isn't organic. People
will have sex regardless of a
fear of AIDS. Some will
wear condoms. Some will not.
It's National Condom Week!
Whoohoo! It's the one week of the
year that I look forward to with
phallic pride and jubtlatbn. Next
to Condom Week, Santa Claus and
the Easter bunny seem � well,
kind of limp.
We should all take a moment to
thank our creator for such
wonderful devices as condoms.
After ail, there is nothing quite like
a condom to make sex more
sensual and natural. I mean, who
wouldn't love wrapping their willy
with a piece of latex? It makes the
warmth of a female vagina feel all
.synthetic and everything � ooh,
ooh; gets me horny just thinking
about it.
And that unrolling of the
condom after making love
(following an immediate pull-out,
as any good health service worker
would recommend), walking to
the bathroom, wrapping that used
sucker in a piece of toilet paper
and tossing it in the garbage can �
nothing like sharing something
special with the one you love.
Let's face it. Condoms suck.
The only reason anyone wears
the damn things is because of an
apocalyptic fear of AIDS. Even
still, in the heat of passion, who
wants to stop, break out the most
synthetic device ever created for
the act of human procreation, and
wrap up the most natural and
sensitive pan of one's anatomy?
Not I.
Still, it's fun to wear the things
every now and then. There are all
shades of colors, flavors, sizes �
vibra-ribbed, studded, glow-in-
the-dark. Condoms can be fun. It
just isn't the way you want to have
sex all the time. They're more like
sexual toys than anything.
The best way to have sex and
avoid AIDS is to find someone you
love, develop a monogamous
relationship, get checked out for
HIM then do it like a couple of jack
rabbits in heat.
Perhaps, I'm being a tad bit
lewd. But it's nice to step out of
the ultra conservative shell every
now and then and say what you
feel. Condoms will never be
effective because sex is about the
most primitive natural thing
humans have left in their biological
make-up and latex just isn't
organic. People will have sex
regardless of a fear of AIDS. Some
will wear condoms. Some will not.
At least that's the way I sec it.

Take away a rapist's toy
rapists should be
castratedIf a child goes
around stabbing other kids
with a steak knife, do we give
him a slap on the wrist, say
"bad boy and let him keep
the steak knife? If children
can V play with their toys
nicely, we take them away.
Those of you with weak stomachs,
and any overly sensitive men, turn
back now. Do not attempt to read
this column.
I think rapists should be
castrated. Now, this statement
comes from someone who does not
believe in capita! punishment or
even in spanking children. This
comes from a vegetarian who won't
squash roaches. I don't think we
have a right to harm any living
thing. But some criminals simply
cannot be let go with a pathetically
short sentence and walking papers
for "good behavior It's not safe.
This is not a thing to be done as
a punishment or purely for
revenge. It would truly serve
society well. First, repeat rapists
who are let out of prison (God
bless our judicial system) are very
likely to rape again, especially if no
mental evaluation or counseling is
provided during their brief little
prison visit. Can anyone think of a
better solution to this problem
than to do away with the
troublesome member? If a child
goes around stabbing other kids
with a steak knife, do we give him
a slap on the wrist, say "bad boy
and let him keep the steak knife?
If children can't play with their
toys nicely, we take them away.
Reason number two: What a
way to make people think twice!
When you have something as
important to a man as his penis on
the line, it would take a whole lot
of convincing to persuade him to
risk it.
But the thing we're overlooking
is that most of these reasons are
"after the fact Wouldn't it be
great if we could all carry
Emergency Home Castration kits?
I mean, it may be the only way to
truly protect yourself these days.
When pepper spray came out,
women thought they could
breathe a sigh of relief. Oh, how
wrong we were! It works on
approximately 90 percent of the
population and the other ten
percent just get really mad. I
wonder who would be more likely
to violently attack someone: the
normal 90 percent of the populace,
or that special ten percent who
have a chemical imbalance in the
brain, which makes them prone to
dangerously high levels of anger
when exposed to a self defense
mechanism? Hmm I'd put my
money on the latter. So imagine
the drop in rape statistics after the
word gets around that women have
this incredible line of defense!
I try to consider the way a
rapist's mind must work, and I
often think that the only way
someone could commit such a
horrible crime is if they have a
serious mental disorder. Frontal
lobotomies were given in the past
to eliminate the violent
tendencies of mental patients.
This is a big hunk of someone's
brain. Although a large portion of a
man's reasoning sometimes takes
place in his penis, there is
absolutely no way that it is a more
important organ than his brain,
and no one saw any harm in
hacking out almost an entire half
of that a few years ago.
I know that there are those
among us who will argue that this
is far too cruel and horrible a
runishment for anyone to receive,
must disagree. Rape victims are
permanently scarred; some never
recover. For many, death would
have been kinder than what they
suffered. It makes perfect sense to
me. If we want the violence to
stop, we must eliminate the tools
that commit it. This includes
guns, nuclear weapons, and in the
case of repeat rapists, penises. I'm
not saying that we should form a
line of all men and methodically
chop away. But Lorena Bobbin
may have been on the right track.
Just something to think about.

Sexual assault reporting botched journalism
I am writing in response to the
article naming two members of
Sigma Phi Episilon as suspects in a
sexual assault case. Somewhere I
heard the saying, "Ignorance is
condemnation without
investigation
It is utterly amazing to me how
another piece of one-sided
journalism has found its way into
the Greenville spotlight. Since the
beginning of these allegations, not
one person has made the slightest
attempt to contact any member of
our fraternity to get a statement or
reaction to those false allegations.
Let me be perfectly clear by
saying that when this investigation
is over, no member of our fraternity
will be found guilty of any degree
of sexual assault in any way, shape
or form.
I would like to clarify a couple
of very basic facts. The house
being flashed across everyone's
television screen and slapped on
the front page of TEC is nor the
house in which these false
allegations occurred.
Also, the girl making these false
allegations of sexual assault is not a
member of the Alpha Xi Delta
sorority. How could TEC even
begin to print a story dealing with
a matter as serious as this without
getting their basic facts straight. I
find it a tragedy that TEC
conveniently throws around the
term sexual assault. It is extremely
disturbing that situations such as
this take away from cases of sexual
assault that have merit and involve
women who desperately need
physical and psychological support
and guidance.
In addition, the real victims of
this ordeal are the young men who
have to face these unfounded
allegations. It is obvious that TEC
has no conscience or regard when
it comes to damaging the
reputation of a fraternity. When
the truth does surface, I hope
TEC will be as eager to follow up
this botched article with a piece of
responsible journalism. It is a sad
irony that those in charge of
educating us are the least
educated among us.
Joseph Donlevy
Junior
President, Sigma Phi Episilon
EDITOR'S NOTE: TEC made
several unsuccessful attempts to
reach Sigma Phi Episilon the week
of Feb. 4. According to Greenville
Police reports, the alleged crime
occured on property adjacent to
and owned by Sigma Phi Epsilon,
whose house was pictured on
TEC's front page. A retraction on
Feb. 10 indicated that the victim's
affiliate sorority was incorrectly
identified.

Big Easy comes to Mendenhall
Mardi Gras comes to
town Friday night
STAFF REPORTS
You don't have to get half-cocked on
Blackened Voodoo beer and show
your butt tattoo to strange men for
beads to experience Mardi Gras.
Mendenhall Student Center is your
ways and means to New Orleans on
Friday night.
The student center, Ronald E.
Dowdy Student Stores and the
Major Events Committee of the
Division of Student Life are
sponsoring this Mardi Gras
Celebration scheduled to kick off at
9 p.m. Activities galore are planned,
which promise to be just as
interesting as chugging Kiwi-fruit
Mad Dog with a drag-queen named
Henry on Bourbon Street (or
whatever boils your crawfish).
Various activities are planned to
continue through the night until
1:50 a.m. Video karaoke will give you
the chance to sing and shout about
it and then have it documented
forever on a free video. The kingpins
can square off downstairs with Glow
bowling at Outer Limitz.
They'll tattoo you in the Cynthia
Lounge if you promise not to moon
anyone for beads. Bourbon Street
Bingo will be held in the dining hall,
and MTV Bingo goes from 10 p.m-
midnight in the multipurpose room.
The Lady Luck Casino will be open
for business in the Social Room with
hourly raffles throughout the night.
Free slices of King Cake will be
given out at the Student
Organization booth.
There's more though, Jo-Jo.
Movie shorts will be shown from
9 p.ml:30 a.m. in Hendrix
Theatre.
The Coronation of the Mardi
Gras King and Queen will take place
at 10:30 p.m. in the multi-purpose
room.
At 11 p.m. in the dining hall, you
can chug hot sauce to your heart's
content - or 'til it explodes - at the
Cajun buffet. Then, shake off the
sausage jambalaya in the Great
Room during the DJ dance, starting
at 11 p.m. and lasting until 1:50 a.m.
There are prizes up the gumbo
all night long, including t-shirts,
masks, hurricane glasses and secret
grand prizes. Grand prizes will be
awarded at 1:30 a.m. (You must be
present to win.)
The event is free to all ECU
students with a valid ECU one card.
One guest per student will be
admitted with a guest pass. Guest
passes are available at the Central
Ticket Office from 8:30 a.m. to 6
p.m. and at Todd Dining Hall from 8
a.m. to 5 p.m. On Friday, pick up
guest passes at the Central Tickejf
Office until 6 p.m. and at the Rej:
Center from 6-9 p.m. For more
information, call 328-4766.
GHOlT DANCE
Jupiter Coyote
Ghost Dance
3 OUT OF 10
Blaxploitation films proved
Hollywood wrong
John Davis
ASSISTANT LIFESTYLE EDITOR
Therc're two kinds of musicians in
the world: the brilliant songwriter
kind, and the skilled, but bereft-
of-ideas sideman kind. Most bands
get lucky enough to have at least
one brilliant songwriter type.
Every so often five or six bereft-of
idcas-sidemen types will get
together, pull a few chord changes
out of a hat, add lyrics and call
themselves a band.
If you're Jupiter Coyote, not
only do you try, try, try to write
songs and fail, but, upon failing,
you add congas in every song at
random points because your album
is supposedly about Native
American dances. Never mind that
Native Americans have never
danced to congas, which are, after
all, an African instrument. Never
mind that the congas are inserted
into the songs with no apparent
attention to composition or
rhythm. Never mind that it's a
grave insult to Native Americans
for a mediocre rock band to
appropriate their culture without
even bothering to do it justice.
Come on guys, we already stole
their land and killed most of them.
You could at least leave their
traditions alone.
Jupiter Coyote wish they were
the Black Crowes. They try pretty
hard to ape the blues-rock sound
of the Crowes, but for the most
part they come off sounding like
somebody gave Hootie valium and
turned on a four track.
Not that Ghost Dance is filled
with horribly bad songs, but there
are no good songs on the album,
either. Most of the songs sit in
genericland. They'd be more fun if
they went ahead and decided to be
really, really horrible. If they
delved into blandness with a deep
and full frenzy, if they covered
"Hold my Hand" with country
accents, for instance, or wrote
songs about their belly-button lint,
they'd at least be interesting.
The lyrics, when not making a
mockery of Native American
religion and culture, are pretty '
boring. The most interesting lyrics
are the cliches: "Monkey's gonna
do what the monkey sees "This
life is turning out to be another
one of my songs Which is pretty
sad if you think about it.
Ghost Dance actually brings the
Spice Girls to mind. Not because
Jupiter Coyote sound like the
Spice Girls, but at least the Spice
Girls wear revealing clothes and
have cute nicknames. In fact, right
now, some "Wannabe" would be
sweet relief
The really terrible thing is that
giving Jupiter Coyote a bad review
is actually difficult, because they
seem like really nice guys. Then
again, perhaps this nice-guyness is
their shortcoming. For example,
who's nicer� Sammy Hagar or
Da rid Lee Roth? Sammy Hagar, of
co rse. Now, who's a better lead
"oca ist? David Lee Roth, hands
After four albums, Jupiter
Coyote haven't gotten any better.
In fact, they've gotten worse,
because, at least on the first
album, they could use the excuse
tha' they were new to the studio.
No' f they're veterans of the studio
t��: they seem to have made the
( reduction of formulaic, banal
r.iu .ic an art form. Stay away from
this record. If you really must have
avenge sounding southern-boy
rock, go buy a used copy of
Fainveather Johnson.

and Trash Pics defines blaxploitation
as politically incorrect films with
lots of sex and violence, featuring
African-American actors.
Perhaps, the politically incorrect
part can help explain
blaxploitatioris popularity in the
ever-so proper '90s. Certainly, you
can see its influence foremost in the
films of Quentin Tarantino and all
his "imitators
Blaxploitation films are filled
with blood, guts, nudity, pimps,
drug dealers and heroes who flat out
kick ass. But some of the films also
served as a means of advancement
for African-Americans. Most
importantly, many blaxploitation
films showed Hollywood that
movies with black stars could sell
both released in
1971. The two
movies came from
very different
places, but both
addressed similar
issues.
Shaft was
produced by a
major studio,
MGM. The movie
starred Richard
Roundtree, a
former stage actor
and model for
Ebony magazine,
as private
detective John
Shaft. The title
song, sung by Isaac
Hayes (currently
Chef on
Southpark), said it
all, "Who's the
black dick who's a
sex machine with
all the ladies?

right The song
won Hayes an
Oscar, the first music Oscar given to
an African-American.

The word "electronica" sounds like
what a cyber-nerd might have
virtual sex with or the superhero
name of one of the X-Men. You
know, like Wolverine is in the heat
of battle and needs some support
and he calls on his new lady friend,
Electronica, to throw down some
serious lightning-style power rays
straight out of her fingers.
In real life, "electronica" refers to
an unspecific style of music. The
definition of the word changes
depending on who's using it, much
the way the word "alternative"
changed meanings in the early 90's
(I just said "early '90s Ain't that
neat!).
In the broadest of definitions,
the word can be applied to any
music that sounds as if it were, in
any way, made with the aid of a
computer. Artists like Prodigy, Roni
string arrangements. This
generalizing is, on the one hand,
silly, but on the other hand, because
of the way radio programmers and
record stores market music, it
actually ends up alienating
musicians from potential fans.
There is an idea, after all, that
using computers in music Is
artificial, bad or insincere. Part of
this comes from the fact that most
folk's exposure to "electronica" is
entirely Prodigy and Prodigy
wannabes. If you hear Prodigy and
believe all other "electronic acts
sound like Prodigy, then, well you're
bound to write the whole genre off
as artificial, because Prodigy
couldn't write a good song if John
Lennon rose from the dead and
helped them.
Prodigy aside, there is also the
idea that using a computer results in
a lack of warmth or transcendent
quality in music. Bull hockey. Once
again, this is a misconception,
commonly held, due to lack of
understanding concerning recorded

Size, DJ Shadow, Bjork and the
Chemical Brothers all fall under the
very general category of
"electronica even though it is
quite clear that none of these artists
have anything musically in common
except that somebody in the record
store business thinks they all "play"
music on computers.
To tell you the truth, this is a
bothersome and annoying
stereotype (no pun intended, kids,
honest) if for no other reason than
somebody dared to group Prodigy
and DJ Shadow in the same group. I
feel pretty bad about staining
Shadow's name by continually
throwing it in the same sentences
with Prodigy.
The whole thing is really quite
silly, if you ask me, because it's just
like claiming that the National
Philharmonic Orchestra and the
Beatles belong in the same genre
since both make extensive use of
music.
To demonstrate, let's do two
things: First, let's have a quick
overview of 20th century American
music, and second, let's look at
sampling.
Some of the biggest opponents of
"electronic" music are jazz
aficionados, classic rock fans and
punk rockers. To these people,
"electronic" music is fake and
unau then tic. Shows to go what they
know. Ever since Sam Phillips
poked a hole in his amplifier, rock
musicians have been using artificial
coloring effects in music. Nobody
with any smarts has the guts to call
up and tell me' Sam Phillips was
"unauthentic

jazz, classic rock and punk, are

to understand opera,
you'll probably find
that it's very different

compared to jazz or

There's a good
reason for this.
Without the

singers must sing that

Once again, unless you've been
trained to understand it, you
probably don't enjoy classical
music, simply because you're
used to a different form of
musical expression, one that
requires electricity.
For all you punk- and indie-
rockers out there, keep in mind
that when the Sex Pistols or the
Dead Kennedys walked into the
studio, they used computers
(such as they had) and
electronic equipment to augment
the raw, noisy sound their fans
enjoy so much. For you classic
rockers, remember that the
Beatles, the Stones, Zeppelin, the
Dead all used synthesizers, which
are, in effect, computers. Beatles'
producer George Martin used a
primitive form of sampling on the
song, "Being for the Benefit of Mr.

digital recording of a sound. Most
popular musicians, from Michael
Jackson to the Cars to David
Sanborn, have been using sampling
for years, but not in the way we
tend to think of it. Most samples
are millisecond-length records of
sounds that are extrapolated by a
synthesizer to reproduce the sound
quality of a certain instrument.
songs are integrated into a new
song. While many (Puffy, Wyclef
Jean, Vanilla Ice) do out and out
swipe the hook from one song and
place it in their own
music, quite a few-
other musicians,
such as Beck, DJ
Shadow, U2, David
Bowie and Nine
Inch Nails use small,
obscure portions of
other songs
coloring effects
their music, not
the main theme.
DJ Shadow, for
example, has
become famous due
to his tendency to
sample several
elements in a
portion of a song,
such as a drum roll,
and then completely
rearrange them. And
if you think this
takes no musical
ability, guess again.
Music, like all
sound, travels in
waves. These waves
have pitch and
frequency. Specific
notes always sound
the same because
they always have
the same pitch and
frequency. When
an artist samples a
song, usually the
song he's putting
the sample into is not the
same tempo (beats per
measure) as the sample
itself. This means he has
to alter the sample
digitally, so that the
tempos match. If he does
this, he has altered the
frequency and pitch of the
sound wave and changed
the note.
Therefore, to use
sampling successfully, a
musician must have a
strong understanding of
the relationship
between different
notes and musical keys.
In other words, if Joe
Blow with no talent
tries to sample, you get a big mess.
Don't let the name of a style of
music scare you. Very likely all the
music you like is "electronic" and
most of it involves computers more
than you realize. So let your hair
down, relax a little and open the
old mind. You'll be surprised at
what you might enjoy.

Whereas Shaft was more a
traditional action movie, Sweetback
had more underground leanings.
The film begins with the 12-year-
old Sweetback losing his virginity to
a hooker, who gives him the
nickname by moaning, "Ohhhh, you
got a sweet, sweet back Van
Peebles uses a freeze frame
technique (similar to the opening
scorpion burning scene in Sam
Peckinpah's The Wild Bunch) during
this scene.
After Sweetback grows up, he
performs live sex acts in a California
whorehouse, where he is busted for
a crime he didn't commit. On the
way to the station, the cops (both
white) pick up a black revolutionary
and beat him. In turn, Sweetback
kills the cops.
The rest of the movie is largely
Sweetback running to the Mexican
border with funky instrumentals
playing in the background. Along
the way, he has to use his skills to
get out of different situations,
including a "sticky" situation when
cornered by a motorcycle gang. To
penetrate the problem, he ravishes
the female leader of the gang.
The movie ends with Sweetback
still running, mixed with shots of a
dead and bloodied dog floating
faceup in a river and a promise that
Sweetback will be back for revenge.
Needless to say, Sweetback is a
disturbing film. It was originally
rated X, and, in fact, the film was
advertised as, "Rated X bv an all

Van Peebles hasn't been involved
in many films since Sweetback.
Oddly, he became a trader on the
stock market in the '80s.
Shaft and Sweetback were just the
beginning of the blaxploitation
craze. Many movies (some good,
some awful) followed, including
Truck Turner, Black Caesar, Dolemite,
Cotton Comes to Harlem, The Mark and
Superfly. The gals got into the ass
kickin' mode, too. The biggest
female blaxploitation star, of course,
was Pam Grier, star of Tarantino's
Jackie Brown. Grier starred in the
blaxploitation classics Cqffy, Foxy
Brown and Scream Blacula Scream.

Steve Earle does it his way at Carolina Theater
Buddy and Julie
Miller open show
Pat reid
SENIOR WRITER
Every once in a while, an artist
comes along who can touch every
member of an audience in a way
that makes the person feel less like
a face in the crowd and more like a
member of a select group. Steve
Earle is one of those artists. Last
Wednesday night, Earle touched a
select few in Durham as part of a
19 date mini-tour supporting his
latest effort, ElCorazon. The small
confines of the Carolina Theater
allowed Earle a'chance to work his
magic and redefine intimate as
related to live music.
Buddy and Julie Miller were
given the honor of opening the
show, and did so with class and
style. They took turns on lead
vocals as they played songs from
their individual CD's. As Julie-
Miller pointed out, "He has Buddy
CD's, and I have Julie CD's. Then
we get together live as the happy
Miller family Their mostly
acoustic set was highlighted with
excellent harmonies and
enchanting folk songs that warmed
the crowd up nicely and prepared
them for the endearing set they
were about to hear.
After a short intermission, Steve
Earle and the Dukes walked
onstage to the delight of the 1,000
people in attendance. As it turned
out, Buddy Miller pulled double
duty as he is also the new guitarist
for the Dukes. People shouted
their hellos as the band strapped
on their instruments and started
"Christmas In Washington
Not a word was spoken from the
stage for two or three songs as
Earle led the Dukes through tracks
from his new album. Finally, after
switching guitars, Earle stepped up
to the mike and stated, "There's
one thing I've found when dealing
with matters of the hearttrust
no-fucking-body" He paused to
look at a girl in the audience and
added. "And you sure as hell better
not trust me That was all the
intro needed for'Mf You Fall off El
Carman.
After a couple of other songs,
Earle spoke up again to say, "I've
only been to Durham-Proper one
time After a brief pause he
explained, "I took a wrong turn
looking for a package store With
that, he was back into the music.
After doing an extended version
of "Mystery Train Pt. II" and "Now
She's Gone Earle stepped out to
the center of the stage and played
a brief, but stylish, mandolin solo.
This served as a proper opening for
the ever-popular "Copperhead
Road Ending the song, he
introduced the band and then
thanked the crowd for being so
good. As he put it, "Usually after
one or two songs, somebody right
about there (motioning to a point
in the audience) starts yelling for going to play that song
"Copperhead Road Like I'm not Earle also added, "You can yell
all the requests you want,
but I'm not going to play
them. As I said earlier, I am a
professional and I think I
know how it should go He
reemphasized this point
later when a fan got fed up
with the yells coming from
the audience. While song
titles were being yelled from
all around, someone finally
shouted, "Play what you
want to play Earle looked
at him and replied, "I'm
going to do that anyway
And with that, he started
anothet song.
Finally, after playing over
two hours of non-stop
favorites, Earle and the
Dukes left the stage. The
crowd got vocal and Earle
returned to do two encores
before leaving again. The
crowd, however, took the
encore, "I Ain't Ever
The Duke.
PHOTO COURTESY OF WARNER BROTHERS
Satisfied to heart and wanted
more. The band willingly obliged
with two more encores. After
bringing the crowd to their feet
with "Guitar Town Earle brought
out Julie Miller and his road
manager Dan Gillis to play and sing
with the band on "Johnny Come
Lately This peppy song left the
crowd with just the right feelings
of wanting more and satisfaction of
what they got.
After the show, Earle appeared
obviously drained as he reclined in
his dressing room and chatted with
friends. Inquiring how far it was to
Knoxville, Tennessee, Earle
showed relief at having an eight
hour bus ride awaiting him. "That
means I can get some sleep. These
four hour bus rides will kill you As
the last person trickled out of his
dressing room, he sat back and
took a deep breath, seemingly
already looking past the night's
sleep to the next night when he
would do it all over again.

Men's basketball struggles in final home game
i

JamsMadisongets
rwenge on the Pirates,
57-5
Tracy M. Laibach
SPORTS EDITO
The James Madison Dukes
came to Greenville on Monday
looking for revenge. And revenge
they got. The Dukes handed the
Pirates a 57-51 home court loss.
The last time JMU met with
the Pirates was in early January on
their home court for a 90-60 Pirate
win, as the men in purple and gold
shot an impressive 63 percent.
Monday's game marked the
38th time the two schools have
met, with JMU leading the series
by a 25-11 margin coming into the
game.
Coming off a disappointing five
point loss at Old Dominion on
Saturday the Pirates headed into
die game looking to pick up their
sixth conference win of the season.
The Pirates came out
aggressive and confident in the
first half, shooting 41 percent from
the floor and 58 percent from the
line to cany a 28-21 lead into the
locker room. Seniors Raphael
Edwards and Dink Peters, each
with seven points, led the Pirates
in scoring while the seven-foot
man in rite middle Alphons van
leriand grabbed five rebounds in
the first.
The Dukes were led at the half
by sophomore guards Jamar Perry,
who put up eight points and junior
EugeneAtkinson with four.
The Dukes gained control of
the game when Rob Strrickiand
went to the line to sink one foul
shot of two. Steven Branch sent in
a six-foot jump shot at the 12:35
mark to tie the score once again.
Less than a minute later, Peters
went to the line for two good shots
that gave ECU a lead to be held for
store their final
PHOTO BY CUW BUCK
the rest of the first half.
In the second half, it was JMU
who came out strong offensively,
while the Pirates struggled on both
ends of the court.
ECU maintained the lead
through most of the half, until at
the 4:28 mark, JMU's Lamont
Boozer went to the line for two
good shots and a one point Duke
lead.
Meadows said that as the
Dukes began to catch up, the
Pirates got down and lost the
confidence that had been carried
through the entire game.
AII in a sudden, rheir guys hits
a shot with one second left on the
shot clock, and it shouldn't have,
but it broke our backs senior
forward Othello Meadows said.
"Everyone hung their heads, and
our fight
was gone
after
that
ECU was
never
able to
regain
control
of the
bail
rne, as
M U
shot
strong
from the
line. The
Pirates
ended
the game
down six
points,
57-51.
"Even
though I
think we
played
hard, it
got to
the point
where
we didn't
stand up
and keep
them
from doing what they wanted to
do Meadows said. "In the past
three years, that has been our
trademark, so I feel like we really
cheated our fans tonight
For the game, Peters posted the
team high with 15 points, while
Perry posted 24 for JMU.
"The last two games we have
not had that killer instinct
Meadows said. "We were in a
position to control the game by-
playing good defense, which we
did in the first half but not the
second. We didn't take the
situation seriously enough
ECU head coach Joe Doolev
said that the difference in the
game was missed shots, especially
from the foul line.
"They made 14 more free
throws than we did, and that made
game of the season.
a big difference Dooiey said. "I
also thought that they, rebounded
at the end of possessions, and that
essentially did us in
Edwards
said that the
Pirates let up
as the Dukes
caught up, and
allowed them
too many
shots. Focusing
on the next
game, he said,
is something
that is not
always easy,
but it is
something that
has to be done.
"Either we
put this loss
behind us or
we stop playing
right now,
Edwards said.
"There is no
decision to be
made, we have
to do it
Parham said
that this game
was the first all

ASSISTANT SPORTS EDITO
The women's basketball team lost
an important game Friday to the
Tribe of William &
Mary but
rebounded Sunday
to defeat the
James Madison
Dukes in triple
overtime, a game
that brought out
the best in the
Lady Pirates.
Players who had
taken a back seat

exploded Sunday,
and senior Jen Cox
broke her previous
scoring record of
21 with a total of
22 points.
The Lady
Pirates went into
Friday's game
against William &
Mary with a sense
of optimism. They
had just broken a
nine game losing
streak with an
upset victory
against the
Richmond Spiders
Feb. 8.
William &
Mary came off the
bench ready to
play, winning the
tipoff and laying
one up right away. They followed it
up with another layup before Cox
got ECU on the board with two
free throws.
"We knew how important this
game was, and I think we went in
a little too excited sophomore
Danielle Melvin said.
ECU then went almost four-
and-a-half minutes and gave up
nine more points before freshman
Jennifer Moretz gave the Lady

the floor, making the score 13-4,

"We weren't playiag hard on

Anne Donovan said that at
halftime. We were playing good

weak. We just acted like we were
playing one-on-one; it wasn't five-

The second half began with the

lead to 29-22 and ECU called a
time out to regroup.
William & Mary kept
expanding their lead, and at the 10
minute mark, led by 11. At that
point, ECU began to come back.
Field goals from Jaynes, Hayes and

worked at ECU, but was unable to

the rest of the

the UNC Tarheels in Chapel Hill.
ECU won the opener 4-2, but lost

SENIOR WHITER
This wceKcnd the ECU'S men's
tennis team traveled to Richmond
University to fury in the VCU
Invitational, a preseason indoor
tournament against Richmond,
James Madison, Virginia
Commonwealth, Elon and
American.
Saturday's matches included a
5-0winoverJMUanda4-l loss to
Richmond. Sunday's matches
included a 4-0 loss to VCU and a 3-
0 win over Etorw
In a reguiaifason match, the
tennis team would normally play
six singles matches and three
doubles matches. Since this was
an indoor tournament they played
a 4-1 format: four singles and one
doubles match.
In the match against Elon, our
second and fourth seeded singles
won their match while the doubles
won also. Roope Kalajo won
second singles, 6-2, 6-2, while
Siben Brunner won easily with a 6-
1,6-1 score. Nils Alomar was up at
first singles, but the match was
called due to the fact that ECU
had already won. Kenny Kirby also
was up when the match was called.
The doubles team of Bret Rowley
and Derek Slate won 6-2,6-2.
The Pirates fought hard against
17th nationally ranked VCU.
Great performances were posted
by second singles Kalajo, whose
match was called since VCU had
already won the match. Kalajo was
up 4-1 in the third set when VCU's
head coach decided to call the
match. Another good performance
was handed in by freshman Oliver
Thalen, who dropped a tough first
set 6-7 and lost the second 1-6.
ECU's entire team put in
excellent performances against the
JMU Dukes. Alomar won at first
singles 6-4, 6-4. Kalajo won at
second singles 6-4, 6-2. Kirby
won at third singles 6-4, 6-1, and
Brunner won at fourth singles 6-3,
6-1. The doubles team of Rowley
and Slate finished off JMU with a
6-3,6-2 win.
The tightest match of the
weekend was against Richmond.
Alomar lost a tough match at first
singles 3-6, 4-6. Rowley lost at
third singles by the same score as
Alomar, and at fourth singles, Kirby
was beaten 3-6, 2-6. The doubles
team of Slate and Thalen won 7-6,
6-0. The win was Thalcn's first
college win.
"We played Richmond tough
and in a regular format 6 singles
and 3 doubles and we probably
can beat Richmond ECU Head
Coach Bill Moore said. "We had a
great performance at doubles with
Derek and Oliver
"Roope was definitely the MVP
of the weekend and played
extremely well for ECU Assistant
Coach Matt Rowe said.
The team will travel to
Davidson in two weekends for
another indoor tournament and
will play a regular format, as many
more courts are available at
Davidson than were at Richmond.
"That the teams that have
access to indoor courts tend to do
better in these tournament since
they practice on them Moore
said.
The team's regular season will
start in mid-March and looks to be
very promising. VCU is expected
to win the conference, but the real
battle will come for the second
spot, which will be challenged by
three teams. Besides ECU, ODU
and Richmond will be fighting for
the spot.

Military basketball
challenge to be held
If you talk to a member of any
of the five branches of the military,
they will say their branch is the
best. For some reason, there has
been a particularly strong
argument between the Army and
the Air Force about who is the
best. The truth is that both are
equally good, and neither can exist
without the other. For the past few
years, Army and Air Force ROTC
have gotten together for several
sporting events for a little
"friendly" competition. This
semester, the two will square off
representing their respective
branches in the annual ArmyAir
Force ROTC basketball game.
The game between future officers.

Pirates than the one on Friday. The
Lady Pirates took the lead at
several points Sunday, as opposed
to Friday, where they only tied
William & Mary twice and never
took the lead. The Dukes got on
the board first with a three pointer.
Cox and Home then scored a field
goal and a three pointer,
respectively, to take
the lead. The two
of them led the first
half with six points
each.
JMU controlled
the last 10 minutes
of the first half and
stayed six points
ahead of the Lady
Pirates for most of
those 10 minutes.
The second half
began with field
goals by Hayes and
Cox that took the
lead. The lead went
back and forth
before the Dukes
took the lead and
held it until the last
minute of the game.
Cox brought the
Lady Pirates to within three with a
series of field goals and free
throws. With 50 seconds left,
Home shot a three pointer to tie it
up. The crowd perked up and
began vigorously cheering the
Lady Pirates. Even as the Dukes
made what could
have been a
disastrous shot, the
crowd continued
cheering. With .7
seconds left,
sophomore Melanie
Gillem scored a two
point shot to send
the Dukes and the
Lady Pirates into
the first overtime.
The lead
seesawed back and
forth, thanks to
shots by Cox,
sophomore Cecilia

The East Carolinian
Canada, Swiss win
curling golds
KARUIZAWA, Japan (AP) �
Switzerland surprised Canada for
the men's Olympic curling gold
Sunday, winning the title 9-3 when
the winners of four of the last five
world championships conceded
the match after the eighth end.
The victory was a near reversal
of Canada's 8-3 victory in round-
robin play.
The loss tempered the joy for
the Canadian team, which claimed
the women's gold earlier in the day
with a 7-5 victory over Denmark.
Apparently, the Olympics
brings out the best in the Swiss,
who haven't won the world
championship since 1992 � the
same year they also won the
Olympics when curling was only a
demonstration sport.

game.
Canada led 4-1 early in the
third period before the U.S.

no bearing on the tournament
since the two teams already were
assured of their place in Tuesday's
final.

and Canada's Lori Dupuis each

U.S. forward Laurie Baker scored

Norway's Adne Sondral, who won

After winning his gold medal on
Thursday, Sondral was struck with
theillness that left him with a
temperature of 39.6 degrees
Celsius (103degrees), according to
Norwegian officials. He was
immediately isolated to protect
the rest of the team.

said Saturday. Juan Antonio
Samaranch acknowledged a
difference between testing for
performance-enhancing drugs
such as steroids and substances
such asmarijuana that are illegal
but don't give an athlete an unfair
edge.
"It is not doping, which deals
with the performance of athletes
he said.
"But I think it's an ethical
point, a point of principal, and we
have a duty to fight against it.

Rugby joins Southeastern
Collegjate Conference
The weekend of Feb. 13-15
marked a historic day for ECU's
Rugby team, as they began play in
a new conference under the
direction of the USA Rugby Union.
The conference, named the
Southeastern Collegiate
Conference (SECC), is part of a
nationwide program instituted this
spring to bring organization and
stability to the collegiate ranks of
rugby.
Under director Michael Pinn
from the University of Central
Florida, the conference play for
ECU began against the perennial
rival Universitv of North Carolina-
Wilmington (UNCW). The game
was played under sunny skies at
the campus of Duke University.
Beeinning with very aggressive
play by UNCW, the Seahawks
initially held the advantage. ECU
quickly came alive though in their
firs conference game and scored
the first try of the game when
Brian Best scored with a pass from
Eric Kunkel. ECU used this first
try to take control of the game and
dominated the rest of the first half.
Boosted by two more tries by Dan
Lewis, and two conversions by
Best, ECU held a 19-0 halftime
lead. The second half would see
ECU totally dominate possession
and score three more tries to win
the game by a score of 44-0.
Kunkel scored a try and a drop goal
to compliment two trys by Best
and another by Brian Kennedy as
ECU cruised by UNCW for their
first conference win.
The second day of competition
would not be an easy day for ECU.
Fresh off their convincing victory,
ECU ran into a North Carolina
State team ready to play. The
game was without scoring for the
first ten minutes until NCSU
scored on an ECU miscue in the
try zone. ECU fought back hard
though and tied the score at seven
with a try by Bobby Lumsden
going into the half. The second
half saw the two teams playing
great defense and preventing
either offense from establishing
any momentum. NCSU took the
lead again with a try but ECU
shortened their lead with a penalty
kick by Best from 30 meters out.
The kick gave ECU new life and
with twelve minutes to go in the
game, ECU took the lead with a
try by Kendall Jones. NCSU tried
to answer but the defense of ECU
proved to be too much and ECU
prevailed with a 17-14 victory.
ECU now holds a commanding
lead in their division to gain a birth
in the regional qualifier towards an
appearance in the national
championship playoff.

were nervous, but we didn't let it

Polonius said the team didn't
panic about being down early.
"We are a team that doesn't
give up Polonius said. "We will

For the game, the Pirates were
aided by six Tarheel errors.
In the second game, however, it
was the Pirate defense that was
shaky. ECU committed four errors
which led to five unearned runs.
UNC scored four runs in the
first inning, all with two out, and
went up by a score of 5-0.
ECU rallied to 5-4 on two-run
doubles by Shepperson and
freshman designated hitter
Jennifer Halpern. The Pirates
could not get any closer as UNC
scored three runs in the fifth, and
another in the sixth.
Polonius said the first inning
was the key to the ball game.
"After the first game we lost
